“Most of the coral reef literature assumes business-as-usual emissions to the end of the century, which would result in global warming of 4, 5 or 6C. We will never get there – not because people will become more and more concerned about coral reefs – but because Florida will go under water and that will get people's attention.” said Terry Hughes speaking about Global warming.

All quotes about Global warming

Linda O'Shields

I know it's an act of nature, but to be hit twice within a year, it makes you wonder what's happening in nature. Is it cyclical? Am I to believe global warming? I don't know.feedback

Volkmar Denner - Bosch

This is a faster way of limiting global warming. We are doing this alongside electric vehicles.feedback

Julian Heming

The North Atlantic hurricane season runs from June-November, with peak activity during August-October. During peak season around 96% of all Atlantic major hurricanes (categories 3, 4 and 5 on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane wind scale) occur. There is much debate about the influence of climate change on hurricanes in the Atlantic. The latest research suggests that there may be an increase in tropical cyclone intensity in the future, under continued global warming. However, the models also indicate that tropical cyclone frequency will either remain unchanged or decrease.feedback

Kevin Sara

If European governments take the Paris accord seriously and want to meet the less than two degrees target for global warming, we need to start importing renewables. 60% of Europe's primary energy is currently imported from Russia or the Middle East. Does the EU really want to be investing in infrastructure that lasts 50 years but which just enables more fossil fuel use?feedback

Dana Nuccitelli

There is no cohesive, consistent alternative theory to human-caused global warming. Some blame global warming on the sun, others on orbital cycles of other planets, others on ocean cycles, and so on. There is a 97% expert consensus on a cohesive theory that's overwhelmingly supported by the scientific evidence, but the 2–3% of papers that reject that consensus are all over the map, even contradicting each other.feedback

Daniel Pauly

They are affected by global warming because their prey are.feedback

Peter Cook

We need to be realistic about it, it's not going to be the solution to the problem of global warming and climate change. I'm sure it will work chemically, and they've shown that it does. The issues is the extent to which you can deploy it.feedback

Ron Illingworth

The biggest thing that we're worried about right now is what's happening with global warming.feedback

Alan Robock

We all agree that climate change is real and that the solution is to reduce the emissions of the gases that cause global warming. The Paris Agreement was a good start, but those pledges aren't enough, and we have to reduce more. Even then it [won't be] fast enough. So what we're looking at is: If global warming is so dangerous, could we shave off a little warming while we continue to mitigate greenhouse gases?feedback

Bob Bullard

For too long, a lot of the climate change and global warming arguments have been looking at melting ice and polar bears and not at the human suffering side of it. They are still pushing out the polar bear as the icon for climate change. The icon should be a kid who is suffering from the negative impacts of climate change and increased air pollution, or a family where rising water is endangering their lives.feedback

Al Gore

President Donald Trump once called climate change a Chinese hoax (although he later claimed he was joking), and the man he appointed to head the Environmental Protection Agency, Scott Pruitt, even denied the most basic scientific finding concerning global warming: that CO2 emissions trap heat in the atmosphere. That fact was proven by scientists more than 150 years ago! These misinformation efforts have thus far been all too effective. They've obstructed progress by normalizing outright denial of science so effectively that the U.S. has more climate change deniers than any other country.feedback

Scott Pruitt

Human activity [is not the] primary contributor to the global warming that we see.feedback

Emmanuel Macron

Donald Trump listened to me, he understood the meaning of my approach, including the link between global warming and terrorism. He told me that he would try to find a solution in the coming months, . We spoke in detail about the things that could make him come back to the Paris accord. It is important to maintain the dialogue so that the US can eventually reintegrate the field of action against global warming and play the game of multilateralism. Something could happen with respect to the Paris accord, let's see what happens.feedback

Paolo Besana

Most people respect the rules but it's summer, and of course we have global warming, and so some come in t-shirts and shorts. Our audience is quite traditional and it's important for them to see other people being well-dressed. It is do with respect for the place and respect for others. Just because it's hot doesn't mean you can't be elegant.feedback

Anna Hogg

At this point it would be premature to say that this was caused by global warming.feedback

Yuval Steinitz

Even if there's a 50 percent likelihood that climate change and global warming are caused by human activity, it is our duty to act to minimize risks.feedback

Stephen Hawking

We are close to the tipping point where global warming becomes irreversible. Trump's action could push the Earth over the brink, to become like Venus, with a temperature of 250°C, and raining sulphuric acid.feedback

Shinzo Abe

Global warming has already resulted in the earth, which sustains human life, experiencing various crises for a long time. That's why we must all take action together quickly.feedback

Kouichi Yamamoto

The Kyoto Protocol was mainly to enhance developed countries to combat global warming, but the Paris climate pact is for all countries and underlines a big advancement. Therefore, the U.S. withdrawal this time has a much bigger implication than that from the Kyoto Protocol.feedback

Costas Synolakis

Earlier, we didn't really believe such extremes were possible. But with global warming and sea level rise, such landslides are going to be far more common.feedback

Peter Wadhams

This is a major warning to us about the dangers of a sea level rise that will continue for many centuries even after global warming is stopped.feedback

Charlie Munger

Al Gore has come into you fellas business … He has made three or four hundred million dollars in your business. And he's not very smart. He had one obsessive idea that global warming was a terrible thing … So his idea when he went into investment counseling is he was not going to put any CO2 in the air.feedback

Carlos Nobre

In many parts of continental South America one sees about 1C warming in the Amazon, which can [be] mostly attributed to global warming. In areas like Rondônia, where there has been widespread deforestation, we see an additional 1C warming due to replacement of forest – which is a high-evaporating vegetation – to pasture, which is less evaporating.feedback

Thomas Curt

As a further aggravating factor, the Iberian Peninsula is experiencing global warming more severely than other regions.feedback

Daniel Pauly

You can have entire fisheries collapsing without knowing because you cannot separate the global warming-induced migration from the reduction due to fishing, or even pollution. So we will never know for sure why this or that collapse has occurred, except in a few cases.feedback

Tom Delay

Carlsberg's ambitions go above and beyond the levels of carbon reduction that science tells us are necessary to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius. Carlsberg has taken a genuine leadership position on some of the most critical environmental issues the world currently faces by developing an ambitious long-term business strategy that focuses on delivering a sustainable future.feedback

Stephen Colbert

Yes, immigrants cause global warming. Saving the planet by demonizing immigrants give liberals and conservatives something they can do together. Now, when a liberal yammers on about the record heat we had this winter, a conservative can say: 'Let's save the environment by building an electrified border fence that runs on alternative energy.feedback

Kaustubh Thirumalai

We wanted to try to go into this business of 'attribution', in which people try to parse out the temperature differences that are caused because of natural variability or man-made anthropogenic variability. El Niño tends to prime this region for extremes, but global warming makes them worse.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

He believes that global warming is naturally occurring. That there are shifts naturally occurring.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Climate is changing. I'm not a believer in man-made global warming. I am not a believer, Unless somebody can prove something to me ... I am not a believer and we have much bigger problems. I'm looking at it very closely. I have an open mind to it. We're going to look very carefully.feedback

Prince Albert

The Principality of Monaco affirms more than ever its commitment in the fight against global warming with ambitious objectives greater than those envisaged by the Paris Agreement. I invite all the nations of the world, signatories of this Agreement, to continue and confirm their commitments for a cause that concerns the preservation of our Earth and Humanity.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Global warming has been proven to be a canard repeatedly over and over again. The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive. Global warming is a total, and very expensive, hoax! I'm not a believer in global warming. I'm not a believer in man-made global warming. I have a very open mind. And I'm going to study a lot of the things that happened on it and we're going to look at it very carefully. But I have an open mind.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Any and all weather events are used by the GLOBAL WARMING HOAXSTERS to justify higher taxes to save our planet! They don't believe it $$$$!feedback

António Guterres - United Nations

Commitments so far could still see temperatures rise by 3 degrees or more. So we must do our utmost to increase ambition and action until we can bend the emissions curve and slow down global warming. The journey from Paris is well underway. The support across all sectors of society is profound. The transition in the real economy is a fact. There will be bumps along the path ... but with everyone's participation, the world can bring the Paris Agreement fully to life.feedback

Stefan Rahmstorf

The U.S. pulling out of Paris will not stop the fight against global warming, since almost all other countries are committed to it. But it could delay it and any delay could be detrimental, as stopping global warming before critical tipping points are crossed is a race against the clock.feedback

Terry Hughes

Most of the coral reef literature assumes business-as-usual emissions to the end of the century, which would result in global warming of 4, 5 or 6C. We will never get there – not because people will become more and more concerned about coral reefs – but because Florida will go under water and that will get people's attention.feedback

Tim Seelig

While we do not believe any new coal mines, including the Adani mine, should proceed given global warming trends and the imperative of carbon emissions reduction, we still welcome these announcements. We thank Deputy Premier Jackie Trad for holding the line on this matter, and we thank the Palaszczuk Cabinet and government for locking in on a better final position. Two and a half years and a week full of crisis meetings, three cabinet meetings, two held late at night and we're still no closer to a deal. I wouldn't be surprised if Adani say this is all too hard.feedback

Katrien Vandevelde

I came particularly to fight against climate change. Trump is accelerating the melting of the ice caps. I so wish the moment he gets home he will be impeached and we can get Bernie Sanders and have the whole world fighting against global warming.feedback

Catherine Pepinster

Progressive Catholics want Francis to be an alternative voice, and diplomacy requires dialogue with people you don’t agree with. When the president of Ireland, Michael D Higgins, visited the Vatican on Monday, he gave Pope Francis a gold and white bell, a symbol of their mutual concern about global warming. It’s usual for heads of state and the pope to exchange gifts during a meeting but it’s hard to imagine Donald Trump, who is due to visit Pope Francis on Wednesday, would ever consider a gift that might have anything to do with climate change. The US president thinks global warming was invented by the Chinese to harm American manufacturing, while the pope is so convinced of its existence he wrote a papal document dedicated to climate change and its consequences for the world’s poorest.feedback

Chip Fletcher

It did not cause any direct inaccuracy, but it did eliminate an important connection to be made by the reader – that global warming is causing sea-level rise. I disagree with the decision from the upper administration to delete it, not with the scientists who deleted it at the administration's request.feedback

Magnus Bredeli Tveiten

We believe the design of the facility will ensure that the seeds will stay well-preserved even if such forces as global warming raise temperatures outside the facility.feedback

Ambarish Karmalkar - Amherst

The benefits of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, instead of 2 degrees Celsius, can be clearly understood for temperature extremes but are not always clear for regional precipitation extremes.feedback

Jeffrey Zekauskas

The simple and broad outline of the investment case for Chemours is that the company has a proprietary set of very profitable newer generation refrigerants with patent lives extending to 2022 with excellent growth potential. These new refrigerants are now growing quickly because of demand from the auto OEM market in the US and Europe inspired by regulatory changes to incentivize the use of technology that minimizes global warming.feedback

Chris Colose - Goddard Institute for Space Studies

If climate science is still very polarized, I have little doubt people will be talking about 'how global warming ended in 2017'. It will be just as silly then, and hopefully all the hiatus talk this time around will serve as a compelling reason to ignore them.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

Ultimately we want all of these roofs to be beautiful and to be generating energy from the sun - that's the future that we want. This is tricky, there's a tax code involved. Global warming is a serious crisis and we need to do something about that. We need to make [solar rooftops] as appealing as electric cars have become. The goal is to have solar roofs that look better than a normal roof, generate electricity, last longer, have better insulation, and actually have a total cost that is less than the price of a normal roof plus electricity. Why would you buy anything else?feedback

Benjamin Barber

It can’t be left to dysfunctional nation states to tackle – but as Oslo and Seoul have shown, metropolitan centres can rise to the challenge of global warming. Climate change is the most urgent challenge facing humankind. Other issues make headlines: terrorism kills; inequality affects everyday life for billions around the globe. But climate is paramount, because in sustainability human survival itself is at stake. Why then have the nations governing the planet been so hopelessly ineffective in addressing the grave environmental crisis?feedback

Stefan Rahmstorf

Incidentally, when in the journal Science in 2007 we pointed to the exceptionally large warming trend of the preceding 16 years, which was at the upper end of the [climate] model range, nobody cared, because there is no powerful lobby trying to exaggerate global warming. And of course in our paper we named natural intrinsic variability as the most likely reason. But when a trend at the lower end of the model range occurs it suddenly became a big issue of public debate, because that was pushed by the fossil fuel climate sceptics' lobby. There is an interesting double standard there.feedback

Piers Forster

There is other work that shows the cool east Pacific that occurred during the hiatus reduced the climate sensitivity and this might affect longer-term trends. In the early 2000s some scientists were talking about accelerating global warming and either for simplicity, or forgetting to, we did not mention that share prices can go down as well as up.feedback

Bret Stephens

As Andrew Revkin wrote last year about his storied career as an environmental reporter at The Times, I saw a widening gap between what scientists had been learning about global warming and what advocates were claiming as they pushed ever harder to pass climate legislation.feedback

Tim Stockdale

For the last decade, the tropical Pacific has tended to be on the cold side, and that has helped keep global temperatures down. With this warming coming back so soon, it makes you wonder if the decadal trend is a bit more on to the positive side. Obviously if that were sustained over the next five to 10 years, it would make the global warming signal stand out more strongly than it has done over the past decade.feedback

Phil Bell

Students just don't have the environmental literacy to discuss [green issues] in a meaningful way, which hinders them from developing a real interest. In English, for example, they should be reading poems about green issues. In history, the environment should be part the curriculum. There's a gap in schools compared with the importance of global warming as an issue.feedback

Brian Hartzer - Westpac Group

Westpac recognises that climate change is an economic issue as well as an environmental issue, and banks have an important role to play in assisting the Australian economy to transition to a net zero emissions economy. Limiting global warming will require a collaborative effort as we transition to lower-emissions sectors, while also taking steps to help the economy and our communities become more resilient.feedback

Bret Stephens

Last week marked the 20th anniversary of the mass hysteria phenomenon known as global warming. Much of the science has since been discredited.feedback

Bret Stephens

For the anti-Semite, the problems of the world can invariably be ascribed to the Jews; for the Communist, to the capitalists. And as the list above suggests, global warming has become the fill-in-the-blank explanation for whatever happens to be the problem.feedback

Chelsea Clinton

The happy pictures of elephants from the Sheldrick Trust or the happy pictures of monkeys playing from the World Wildlife Fund make me very happy. I find [them] so joyful. [It's] infuriating when [the posts are] about elephant poaching or what's happening to our ecosystems because of global warming and climate change.feedback

Peter Darbee - Pg&e

We find it dismaying that the chamber neglects the indisputable fact that a decisive majority of experts have said the data on global warming are compelling and point to a threat that cannot be ignored.feedback

Geoff Cousins

The Adani coalmine will fuel the global warming that is making the reef sick, threaten 70,000 tourism jobs that rely on it, and divert urgent investment from renewable energy.feedback

Terry Hughes

The combined impact of this back-to-back bleaching stretches for 1,500 km (900 miles), leaving only the southern third unscathed. Without a doubt the most pressing of these is global warming.feedback

Terry Hughes

The combined impact of this back-to-back bleaching stretches for 1,500 kilometres, leaving only the southern third unscathed. The bleaching is caused by record-breaking temperatures driven by global warming. This year, 2017, we are seeing mass bleaching, even without the assistance of El Nino conditions. Clearly the reef is struggling with multiple impacts. Without a doubt the most pressing of these is global warming.feedback

Terry Hughes

The bleaching is caused by record-breaking temperatures driven by global warming. This year, 2017, we are seeing mass bleaching, even without the assistance of El Nino conditions. Clearly the reef is struggling with multiple impacts. Without a doubt the most pressing of these is global warming. As temperatures continue to rise the corals will experience more and more of these events. One degree Celsius of warming so far has already caused four events in the past 19 years. Ultimately, we need to cut carbon emissions, and the window to do so is rapidly closing.feedback

Terry Hughes

Clearly the reef is struggling with multiple impacts. Without a doubt the most pressing of these is global warming. As temperatures continue to rise the corals will experience more and more of these events: 1°C of warming so far has already caused four events in the past 19 years. Ultimately, we need to cut carbon emissions, and the window to do so is rapidly closing.feedback

Terry Hughes

We've had a back-to-back bleaching for the first time. So we redid our aerial surveys again, which was a bit tough. I was hoping to never have to do it again. I showed the results of aerial surveys of #bleaching on the #GreatBarrierReef to my students, And then we wept. That's obviously an enormous loss over two-thirds of the Great Barrier Reef. I wouldn't say the barrier reef is dying. But clearly, we're measuring serious losses here. And the reason it's happening is global warming.feedback

Michael Howard

When John Major set up our global warming strategy, the doom-mongers said it would ruin living standards. New research shows how wrong they were. Just before the Rio Earth summit 25 years ago, John Major, in whose cabinet I then served as environment secretary, made a bold prediction: reducing Britain’s carbon emissions in line with recommendations of climate science would not, he said, harm our economy: “Our initial measures ... will bring a worthwhile economic payoff to the country, to business and to ordinary people.”.feedback

Greg Sargent

President Trump’s new efforts to dramatically roll back our current climate change policies — which will effectively end the United States’ leadership role in securing science-based international cooperation against global warming — constitute perhaps the clearest sign yet that his administration will be animated by contempt for science and fact-based governing.feedback

Christopher S. Murphy

Future generations will judge President Trump for this attack on our health and our safety. The Republican party is going to extraordinary lengths to deny that this meteor that is global warming is careening toward us.feedback

Silvia Riberio

Clearly parts of the Trump administration are very willing to open the door to reckless schemes like David Keith's, and may well have quietly given the nod to open-air experiments. Worryingly, geoengineering may emerge as this administration's preferred approach to global warming. In their view, building a big beautiful wall of sulphate in the sky could be a perfect excuse to allow uncontrolled fossil fuel extraction. We need to be focussing on radical emissions cuts, not dangerous and unjust technofixes.feedback

Terry Hughes

It broke my heart to see so many corals dying on northern reefs on the Great Barrier Reef in 2016. With rising temperatures due to global warming, it's only a matter of time before we see more of these events . A fourth event after only one year would be a major blow to the reef. The severity of the 2016 bleaching was off the chart. In its weakened state, the reef cannot afford the Adani mine.feedback

Shannon Wheeler

A friend suggested the idea. We were having coffee and … he said: 'You should illustrate Trump's tweets'. It might have been a joke to shut me up. I started work that night. I then solicited help, via my Twitter followers, to get a comprehensive Twitter text files. There are over 30,000. I read them sequentially. When I noticed themes, I'd collect them – global warming, windmills, David Letterman, Obama's vacation time and birth certificate, etc. I'd string together tweets to make a narrative arc.feedback

Terry Hughes

We're hoping that the next 2-3 weeks will cool off quickly, and this year's bleaching won't be anything like last year. The severity of the 2016 bleaching was off the chart. With rising temperatures due to global warming, it's only a matter of time before we see more of these events. A fourth event after only one year is a major blow to the Reef. I think it's a wake-up call. We've been hoping that local interventions with water quality and fishing would improve the resistance of the corals to bleaching. We found no evidence that that's actually true, at least during a very severe event.feedback

Brian Johnson

The more I look into it, the more I realise it really is a huge commitment. I will probably have to resign from my job in order to campaign. He appointed Rick Perry to be in charge of the Department of Energy. He's not exactly a nuclear engineer. He's been looking to defund data collection on global warming. He's just protecting his interest in fossil fuels, not serving the American people.feedback

Mick Mulvaney

You can expect reductions in the EPA that don't line up with the president's view on things like global warming and alternative energies. You will see a reduction in subsidies, a reduction in participation in those types of programs. The core functions of the EPA can be satisfied – beyond the core functions – can be satisfied with this budget.feedback

David Kreutzer

No consensus exists that man-made emissions are the primary driver of global warming.feedback

Scott Pruitt

So, no, I would not agree that (carbon dioxide) is a primary contributor to the global warming that we see. I do not believe climate change is a hoax.feedback

Anthony Leiserowitz

For many Americans, even those that do accept that global warming is real and important, they still tend to think of it as distant.feedback

Liam Goucher

We found in every loaf there is embodied global warming resulting from the fertilizer applied to farmers' fields to increase their wheat harvest. This arises from the large amount of energy needed to make the fertilizer and from nitrous oxide gas released when it is degraded in the soil.feedback

Gabriel Yvon-Durocher

This is the first experiment to investigate the long-term effects of warming in aquatic ecosystems. Given the substantial contribution small ponds make to the emission of greenhouse gases, it is vital to understand how they might respond to global warming. Our findings show that warming can fundamentally alter the carbon balance of small ponds over a number of years, reducing their capacity to absorb carbon dioxide and increasing emissions of methane.feedback

Robert Murray

There's no scientific analysis either. I have 4,000 scientists that tell me global warming is a hoax. The Earth has cooled for 20 years.feedback

Richard Levick

On the global warming issue, scientists at the EPA have been copying their files onto thumb drives for fear of a draconian style of leadership in the EPA. It was no accident that within the last full week of the [Obama] administration is when the EPA announced this. And because Fiat Chrysler just announced more jobs in America, it's a favorable time for them to deal with Trump's administration.feedback

Scott Pruitt
Luther Strange

Scientists continue to disagree about the degree and extent of global warming and its connection to the actions of mankind. That debate should be encouraged – in classrooms, public forums, and the halls of Congress.feedback

Song Lianchun

Extreme weather has a certain connection with global warming. In fact, our country's overall climate and weather conditions are not very conducive for the dispersal of fog and smog - that is based on science. Looking at the long-term global warming trends, meteorological conditions are becoming an increasingly important factor in the formation of fog and smog, and furthermore, fog and smog are not unique to China.feedback

Tony Atti

That legislation, or at least agreement to that legislation, is staggering. Now, refrigeration companies and original equipment manufacturers have to find an alternative refrigerant. What's shocking to us is they're transitioning from a global warming emitting refrigerant to the same one used in your lighters – it's flammable.feedback

Keith Ahsoon

This is part of making history. This project will help lessen the carbon footprint of the world. Living on an island, you experience global warming firsthand. Beach erosions and other noticeable changes are a part of life here. It's a serious problem, and this project will hopefully set a good example for everyone else to follow.feedback

Liu Zhenmin

I hope the Republican administration will continue to support the process of tackling global warming. We have to expect they will take a right and smart decision.feedback

Petteri Taalas - World Meteorological Organisation

The extra heat from the powerful El Nino event has disappeared. The heat from global warming will continue.feedback

Richard Branson - Virgin Group

It's pretty terrifying when you throw out the list of all these issues. Global warming could be set back almost irreparably. And universal healthcare, that could be set back almost irreparably – help with refugees, all these issues, gay rights.feedback

Segolene Royal

If such decisions are taken it would be absolutely catastrophic. I dare to believe that such things are campaign promises to please a certain electorate which has not understood that global warming is a reality.feedback

Hans Joachim Schellnhuber - Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research

President-elect Donald Trump's stance on global warming is well known. Ironically, he contributed to the popularity of our recent 'Turn Down the Heat' report series for the World Bank by attacking it on Twitter. Yet apart from this, science cannot expect any positive climate action from him. The world has now to move forward without the US on the road towards climate-risk mitigation and clean-technology innovation.feedback

Stefan Rahmstorf

Halting global warming at a manageable level, as the world's nations decided in the Paris Agreement, is now a race against time.feedback

Marco Springmann

It's clear that if we continue with our diets as projected we have no chance of keeping global warming [under control].feedback

Joel Guiot

The Paris Agreement says it's necessary to limit global warming to 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit), if possible 1.5 degrees. That doesn't seem much to people, but we wanted to see what the difference would be on a sensitive region like the Mediterranean.feedback

Jessica Blunden

It's kind of nice to see it cool down a little bit even though it will go back up again. It may not be a record now because we have natural variations in weather and climate. There's always going to be ups and downs but that doesn't mean global warming isn't happening.feedback

Gunnar Luderer - Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research

If the world is serious about tackling climate change, the world's energy mix in 2050 will have to look fundamentally different from the one we have today. Limiting global warming to well below 2°C, as agreed by the international community at the climate summit in Paris last year, requires close to carbon-free electricity supply and a drastic reduction of fossil fuel use in the industry, transportation and buildings sectors.feedback

Shuman Ghosemajumder - Shape Security

It is like an ecological disaster. But pick the right disaster. It's more like global warming than it is an earthquake. ... It builds up gradually.feedback

Alden Meyer - Union of Concerned Scientists

All countries will need to raise the ambition of their commitments under the agreement if we're to avoid the worst impacts of climate change and reach a goal of net zero global warming emissions by mid-century. But this is an important step forward that reinforces the US and China's continued leadership in building a robust, durable international climate framework.feedback

Karen Janssens - Veco

Many studies prove that coffee production will move higher up because of global warming. For this reason, cocoa could be an alternative for producers whose estates are in lower zones.feedback

Marshall Shepherd

I honestly believe that low science literacy allows people to fall for things that make no sense. For example, when it is cold or a snowy day, I may get a comment like 'There is 20 inches of global warming in my yard.' While that is a cute, snarky comment, it really illustrates a lack of understanding of weather versus climate.feedback

Brian Morton

China will take no notice of the Hague ruling. And it will be virtually impossible to restore the reefs given global warming and destructive fishing techniques continuing.feedback

Femke De Jong

So these emissions urgently need to be addressed. So the deal agreed yesterday is a first step to actually regulating these emissions. However it is not sufficient to limit global warming levels that are considered safe.feedback

Jonathan Overpeck

We should anticipate more and more of this extreme heat, and we're getting to feel it firsthand. It is what global warming looks and feels like.feedback

Liu Pengfei

As sea ice has declined due to global warming, Arctic navigation has increasing possibilities. That's why we need guidance for ships with the Chinese flag.feedback

Sarah Palin

I'm very passionate about this issue. We've been told by fearmongers that global warming is due to man's activities and this presents strong arguments against that in a very relatable way.feedback

Mark Parran

But I guess due to global warming it's gotten earlier. It's on track right now. We had a big run on Jan. 31 into the first of February.feedback

Francois Hollande

We want an agreement to be reached, not just any agreement, but one that is ambitious and binding, an agreement which can be reviewed so as to reach our aim to limit global warming to less than 2 ºC by the end of the century.feedback

Fabien Farge

Six months ahead of the Paris meeting on climate change, here in Lyon the climate summit for regions and provinces is underway. It's holding events and workshops on topics such as deforestation, land solutions and global warming.feedback

Carsten Gruening

Our station is set up for a long-term monitoring of the CO2 flows, so we will be tracking the effects of climate change on the forest ecosystem in the next 10 years. We would have to extend this research at a European and worldwide level to see how forests react to climate change, to global warming, and what their capacity to store CO2 in the future would look like.feedback

Stephan Singer

WWF is disappointed by many European governments do not speak up loudly and say 'We want a 30% emission reduction by 2020, because this will allow us to combat climate change – to stay below two degrees global warming.feedback

Martin Kaiser - Greenpeace

After the EPA announcement to get active against CO2 emissions, President Obama is now able to reduce CO2 levels in America to reach the required targets to tackle global warming. In Copenhagen, we expect President Obama to raise emission targets and with this an historic deal can be reached.feedback

Rebecca Harms

High oil prices and global warming indicate that the time is now to go for a smaller, more efficient, climate-friendly cars. And those manufacturers who refuse to accept this will lose on the world market, because the future is with efficient, smaller cars.feedback

Rick Hammond

Our generation, that grew up when Kennedy was president, was about leaving the world a better place, do your part, leave the world a better place. At this point, with global warming, I just want to leave it viable.feedback
